You'd have to twist my pinky to get me to fly.

A good mid-vent day at Busse. Mark and myself.
Two similar custom kite designs by coincidence. That's mine on the left.

A good time was had by both. I took a bunch of pictures with my i-phone -- total crap. Next time I bring the real thing, a camera.

Thanks for the pics, Bill. I wonder if the phone cam settings can be changed. Everything was blurry and weirdly colored like yellow sky and purple kites.

You probably have a filter set on your iPhone. Fern had this problem once.
Look at one of the photos in the photos app on your phone.
Tap edit
If you're running recent software, click on the icon that is three overlapping circles.
Click none.
Your photo should look normal.

Checked for filters -- none set. Enabled HDR and the HDR version of the test photos I took is much better. Will try it outside again and see if there is a dramatic difference, if any.

I think the best results will be had with a real camera. Worth lugging the extra pound.

Phone photos aren't as good as a real camera, but they're not bad. Most everything you see on Facebook was taken with a phone. If your colors were way off there must have been a filter set or there is something wrong with your phone.
